Houston Rodeo scholarship information
Each year, nearly 2,000 students attend Texas colleges and universities thanks to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Parents and students alike should start looking into the opportunities for financial assistance through the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Although the Show promotes agriculture and Western heritage, Show scholarships are for students from any background and with any choice of college major -- no agriculture needed. Students with majors ranging from accounting to biomedical science, and criminal justice to education, are currently pursuing their dreams on a Show scholarship.
During the summer months, Show officials handed out more than $2 million to students in FCCLA, Texas 4-H, and Texas FFA. In February, the Show’s 60 area Go Texan counties also received $16,000 scholarships for 70 graduating high school seniors outside the Houston Metro, for an additional total of $1,120,000.
In order to receive a Show scholarship, applicants must first meet Show requirements:
•Be a graduating high school senior.
•Be a citizen of the United States and a Texas resident.
•Completely fill out and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.
•Plan to attend college in the state of Texas.
•Not have other financial aid(total) exceeding $75,000.
•Submit a full application by the deadline.
